"I heard on the news the other day about this
guy that got killed after the Detroit Tigers won
the pennant in Detroit. It seems that in all of
the victory celebration afterwards, a man was
riding his motorcycle through the traffic jammed
cars when suddenly a car door flung open and
ripped the man's arm clean from his body. The person
in the car got out and picked the arm up and
threw it in the back seat. The police caught up
with him a few days later and the man was arrested."
You pause here for a few seconds and then you say,
"They arrested him for armed robbery."
